Illustrator Christian Wood


Book Illustration from 'Gardening for the Zombie Apocalypse' Published by Head of Zues. Available from book shops now.

My name is Christian Wood or 'Woodsy' and I live in London, UK. I grew up just outside London and spent lots of time drawing as a child. If I wanted a new toy, my Mother would instead hand me a pencil and i would draw my own adventure. From a young age, I was interested in Hip Hop, graffiti and breakdancing. I loved horror and sci-fi movies and I became interested in making things that only existed in my mind. I enjoyed escapism.

This is the letter A, performed by one of my flexible little characters which have been a large part of my work lately. I made this for the yearly 36 Days of Type challenge. I've been using my fascination of dance and physical theatre to further develop my visual language.

I worked within the building trade for years before completing my BA Honours degree in Illustration at Camberwell College of Art in 2013. Now I work as a freelance illustrator and artist. I use digital apps like Adobe Illustrator and Cinema 4D but I draw in my sketchpad as much as I can. I also like to use a spraycan, and all kinds of paints to make work away from the computer.

A promotional illustration that was used online and for posters, advertising the huge yearly dance party called Jamuary organised by #hashtagunity London.
